We think recruitment is a two way process. On the one hand, we need to make sure you’re the sort of caring, skilled individual we’re looking for. And on the other, you need to care about the role if you're going to take it on, and crucially, perform at your best.
So before you apply, remember to read all the details about the job carefully. Make sure it's for you.
Then apply, safe in the knowledge that we’ll keep you informed at every step. It's the treatment you deserve.
1. Check vacancies
Look for our ads on www.jobs.nhs.uk, other online and offline publications and social media.
Our tip: if an ad offers a named contact for more information, use it. You’ll improve your chance of success by finding out as much as you can before applying.
You will be directed to apply via our online portal, using an online application form.
This ensures your details are entered directly into our tracking system and we can progress your application as quickly as possible.
Our tip: Think about who will give you references if your application is taken forward and give them the heads up that they may be contacted. Make sure you have up to date contact details, including an email address, if possible.
3. Wait for news
It may take us a few weeks to make our selection, but you’ll hear from us by email, whether or not you are through to the next stage.
Our tip: Check both your inbox and your junk mail folder regularly. Emails from our automated system are sometimes marked as junk. Because it’s automated, you’ll find it easier to access via a laptop or desktop computer with a broadband connection, rather than a mobile phone or tablet.
